Learn to scuba dive in the Gili islands! During this half day “discover scuba diving” course you will be introduced to the basic knowledge of scuba diving. The first part of this introduction to scuba diving will start slowly in a swimming pool – nothing to be afraid of – you will get started with some basic skills to gain confidence. Your instructor will lead you through scuba diving equipment use, safety rules, underwater communication and breathing technics.

Once the pool session is finished, and after a small break, you will go for an open water dive with your instructor. That open water dive will last about 45 minutes (depending on your air consumption) and will have a maximum depth of 12 meters. P.S. Turtles are almost guaranteed.

If you liked it, you can get credit! Your basic diver program may count toward your Open Water Diver certification, putting you a step ahead if you decide to go for it and become a certified scuba diver (it would only take you two more days to get your Open Water Certification).

RECREATIONAL SIDEMOUNT
Minimum age: 12+ years
Prerequisite: Open Water Certification

Max depth: 30 meters / 18 meters 12 to 14 years
Duration: 2 days

Price (all equipment included): IDR 4,500,000
Once-off Gili Matra national park entry fee: IDR 100,000
Learn to dive another way! It’s even safer, as you dive with two tanks (instead of one) and have easy front access! Two cylinders also means more gas, which allows for longer bottom times (ideal when combined with NITROX gas).

Recreational Sidemount Diving offers several major advantages over traditional recreational diving equipment. It feels like diving on a mattress! It comes from cave and wreck diving as it gives the ability to maneuver the gear around which is ideal to penetrate narrower environments.
ENRICHED AIR NITROX
Minimum age: 10+ years
Prerequisite: Open Water Certification
Number of dives: 2
Max depth: 30 meters / 12 meters 10 & 11 years / 18 meters 12 to 14 years
Duration: 1 day

Price (all equipment included): IDR 3,100,000
Once-off Gili Matra national park entry fee: IDR 100,000
Enriched Air diving is the safest way to scuba dive! Your body will absorb less nitrogen during your dive compared to someone diving on air. Less nitrogen also means a longer no-decompression time, which translates to more time spent underwater, especially in the case of repetitive dives. You will learn how to analyze your gas tank, calculate your depth limit, set up your dive computer, and prepare your dive profile.

Every scuba diver should have their NITROX qualification! If you are planning to do a lot of diving, or going on a liveaboard cruise, the NITROX certification is a must have!
